Your Guide to the Possibilities That Come With a Bachelor's in Technology Management

The Bachelor of Science in Technology Management takes your experience in the field and potentially transfers in academic technology credit from your technology diploma or associate’s degree (i.e., Aviation Maintenance Technology, Aviation Electronics Technology, etc.) and provides the balance of your courses in management. Another option is to have your FAA certificates evaluated as potential prior learning credits.


Note: This degree is not a traditional “technology degree” where people will go to work in traditional “technology” jobs such as Information Technology (IT).


It's also a big part of the reason why the Bachelor in Technology Management program at Spartan College of Aeronautics and Technology is ultimately such an important one. It's a well-rounded bachelor’s program designed to give you access to the technical capabilities (and the business acumen) required to succeed in today's fast-paced digital world after graduation. To enroll in the Bachelor of Science in Technology Management program tech students need work experience and flight students need certain certifications to enroll.

Throughout the process, you'll receive the training and the experience needed to increase your knowledge and management skills across the board. You'll be better prepared for future opportunities in many of the technical industries you already have experience with. It's a chance to complete a robust Bachelor of Science program in a convenient format.


The Versatile Bachelor of Science Program You Need


A key thing to understand about your Bachelor of Technology Management education is that it involves so much more than just enhancing your prior technical training. That's a major component, to be sure — but you'll also be focused on obtaining a well-rounded education that focuses on aspects like communication, quantities reasoning, critical thinking, among other pertinent topics.


Business management will also be a major emphasis, as this is an important skill regardless of the specific industry you choose. Through a mixture of prior real-world experience and classroom education, you'll walk away with the technical and management skills and knowledge you need to prepare for a host of future opportunities — including those in entry-level management.


Note that the Bachelor's in Technology Management program at Spartan College is expressly designed for students who have graduated with technical diplomas or degrees from Spartan College or other accredited institutions and who already have experience in the field. Tech students at Spartan College need work experience and flight students need certain certifications to enroll in our bachelors. From that perspective, it's one of the most efficient — and versatile — Bachelor of Science programs available to you. There are even courses that take a deeper look at the types of managerial practices needed for business in today's global marketplace.


In accordance with Spartan College’s transfer policy, you may be awarded up to 30 transfer credits of coursework from an accredited college taken in a technical field as technical electives. You may also be able to be awarded transfer credits for non-technical credits such as general education and business courses that are equivalent to Spartan courses up to the maximum threshold as outlined in the transfer credit policy. Just a few examples of technical elective credits include but are certainly not limited to ones like:


  • Aviation Technicians
  • Aviation Electronics Technology
  • Automotive
  • Nondestructive Testing Technology
  • Quality Control Management.
  • Construction
  • Mechatronics
  • And many, many others


Applying Your Bachelor's in Technology Management to the World of Aviation


One of the more obvious examples of how you can apply your Bachelor of Technology Management education comes by way of the aviation industry. Upon the completion of your program and with your previous experience in the field, you'll have the skills and the discipline needed to apply for a wide range of both business and possible entry-level supervisory positions.


You could choose to apply for an Operations Manager, Maintenance Manager, or Program Manager, for example. This is someone who works to both maintain and repair not only aircraft but other important assets, all in accordance with FAA regulations and standards. This role is essential in terms of keeping a plane and its passengers safe before it ever even taxis down the runway for takeoff. This will all depend on your prior certification or degree.


An airline manager is another example of a career you could choose to pursue when you have experience within that company. Here, you'll work directly in an airport or similar environment to guarantee compliance with all state, local, and federal rules and regulations. In addition to making sure that these compliance factors are being proactively addressed, you'll also have oversight into different departments to help make sure they're running as safely (not to mention as effectively) as possible at all times.


You'll also have the opportunity to go over all of these possibilities during your actual courses, as one is dedicated entirely to the subject of career exploration. It will give you a chance to develop a more effective approach to the job search. You'll learn more about what organizations in the aviation industry expect from someone with a Bachelor of Technology Management, and you'll dive into job trends and other insights that you can take advantage of. You'll also have the chance to develop the type of professional portfolio you need to make the best first impression — which in and of itself is one of the more critical components to begin your job search.


Go Beyond Aviation With Your BSTM


Of course, your Bachelor in Technology Management combined with your previous experience can be applied in a range of other industries, too. It will be invaluable in those fields that work with computer-controlled equipment and in other environments where automation has become the new norm — with industrial settings being perhaps the most prominent example.
